After completing an agreement to buy Chelsea, the American-Swiss partnership is expected to take over from Roman Abramovich before the end of the month.

According to Nizaar Kinsella, the Premier League might ‘waive through’ an agreement by the end of this week or early next week.

On the weekend, Boehly was in attendance as Chelsea were held to a late draw by Wolves, ahead of his official declaration as owner once the Premier League and the Government ratify the deal.

This will be welcome news to Thomas Tuchel, who recently stated that the takeover issue has caused his team to become preoccupied in their matches.

I think there’s no sense in hiding from the fact that it is a distraction,” he said. “It is a matter of how many levels we can reach up even if we are distracted or worried or disadvantaged by it. We did excellent until the international break, it had no effect in terms of results. It had almost the opposite effect. 

“We felt strong during the difficulties and the announcement, the sanctions in place. Maybe something also very human and normal took place, in the moment of two weeks off or one week off with the players not here, there were different influences to them and maybe more thoughts to the situation in general.

“The situation is now very, very long and the players also want to feel competitive and know what’s going on next season. A player, a guy like Toni decided to change the club. With every day it gets a bit more difficult, not impossible. We are still looking to reach the level and be competitive, and win games. It is no excuse but for sure is a reason.”
